“Hemos pasado nuestro segundo intercambio en la casa que posee Paola y sus niños en Florencia. Maravillosa experiencia con nuestras hijas, y todo gracias a la situación y fantástica casa de Paola. Desde el primer día nos hemos encontrado como en nuestra casa, cómodos y fuera de agobios de la ciudad. Estupendamente situada, junto al parque Boboli, se puede ir andando al puente Vecchio y a todos los museos y monumentos de la ciudad. Y si se quiere coger servicio público las paradas del autobús están a cinco minutos. Buena situación para salir de excursiones por la Toscana. Totalmente recomendable. Nuestra casa estaba en perfectas condiciones. Gracias por vuestra hospitalidad y vuestros consejos.”
Where is it?
Our house is in "Oltrarno" (on the other side of Arno river), close to Piazza di Porta Romana, ten minutes walk to Pitti Palace and Santo Spirito, a very romantic and ancient part of Florence, known for its artisans workshops, coffee bar and typical restaurants. Crossing Ponte Vecchio, in a few minutes walking, you can reach the very heart of Florence: Palazzo della Signoria and Piazza Santa Croce (wonderful to visit, not suitable to live, crowded and warren...). Our apartment is at the ground floor of a small building in a quiet street from which you can easily reach by foot also the tree-lined streets that lead to the famous Piazzale Michelangelo. We love our place because is close to the center, but surrounded by villas and trees.
There are bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood, a little open air market just in Porta Romana Square, a supermarket (Sunday open 8 AM-14PM!), cozy shops and stores.
Public buses are nearby, but the better way to explore Florence is by feet or by biclyce... We have two bikes we can provide to you to drive around the city!
The location is perfect to visit Florence, but also to move in Tuscany, as the house is not far from Highway A1 - Impruneta, few hours (N) to Bologna and Milan and (S) to Rome and Naples. An opportunity not to be missed is a visit to Siena, which can be quickly reached with a bus that stops right in Piazza di Porta Romana.
